Complementary therapies research unit to close18th March 2010
An academic department looking at the evidence behind the use of complementary therapies is likely to close next year amid a bitter row over its funding.
The complementary medicine department at Peninsula Medical School could close in June 2011 unless additional funds of £1.5m can be found. It says the funding shortfall is due to a ‘difficult’ financial climate. However, Professor Edzard Ernst, professor of complementary therapies and head of the centre, claims a personal intervention from Prince Charles’ private secretary is behind the cash crisis.
